Valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve implantation after failed surgically implanted aortic bioprosthesis versus native transcatheter aortic valve implantation for aortic stenosis: Data from a nationwide analysis.

CONCLUSION: We observed that valve-in-valve TAVI was associated with good short- and long-term outcomes. No significant differences were observed compared with native valve TAVI regarding clinical follow-up. PMID: 32532695 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Liu X, Gong Y Abstract Females are highly predisposed to the occurrence of migraine, a recurrent neurovascular headache disorder. Although migraine improves or disappears during pregnancy, a significant association between migraine and hypertension (i.e., pre-eclampsia) or vascular complications (i.e., stroke) during gestation has been determined. Low-dose aspirin exerts an antithrombotic effect and can improve vascular resistance by regulating endothelial function, which are implicated in the pathogenesis of migraine, pre-eclampsia, and other vascular complications during pregnancy. Low-dose aspirin is wi...

Purpose of review Nonsevere hemophilia A (NSHA) patients have received relatively little clinical and research attention as compared with their severe counterparts. There is increasing recognition that despite their milder bleeding phenotype, the management of NSHA can be a challenge, with most management decisions largely inferred from severe hemophilia A data. This review focuses on some of the more recent developments in the field of NSHA. Recent findings Epidemiologic studies suggest that NSHA remain under-recognized and under-diagnosed globally. As the NSHA population ages, they are susceptible to age-related com...

Purpose of review Anticoagulation with vitamin-K antagonists or direct oral anticoagulants is associated with a significant risk of bleeding. There is a major effort underway to develop antithrombotic drugs that have a smaller impact on hemostasis. The plasma contact proteins factor XI (FXI) and factor XII (FXII) have drawn considerable interest because they contribute to thrombosis but have limited roles in hemostasis. Here, we discuss results of preclinical and clinical trials supporting the hypothesis that the contact system contributes to thromboembolic disease. Recent findings Numerous compounds targeting FXI or ...

CONCLUSIONS: Urgent minimalist TAVR can be safely performed with favorable in-hospital outcomes, while increased 30-day and 1-year mortality rates suggest the importance of appropriate diagnosis and timely treatment of severe aortic stenosis. PMID: 30700628 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Robson A, Sturman J, Williamson P, Conboy P, Penney S, Wood H Abstract This is the official guideline endorsed by the specialty associations involved in the care of head and neck cancer patients in the UK. This paper provides recommendations on the pre-treatment clinical assessment of patients presenting with head and neck cancer. Recommendations • Comorbidity data should be collected as it is important in the analysis of survival, quality of life and functional outcomes after treatment as well as for comparing results of different treatment regimens and different centres. (R) • Patients with hyp...

Conclusions: Many unnecessary tests are obtained to evaluate syncope. Selecting tests based on history and examination and prioritizing less expensive and higher yield tests would ensure a more informed and cost-effective approach to evaluating older patients with syncope._____________________________________________________________________________4)    Reed MJ.  The ROSE (Risk Stratification of syncope in the emergency department) Study.  J Am Coll Cardiol, 2010; 55:713-721, doi:10.1016/j.jacc.2009.09.049  Objectives: The aim of this study was to develop and validate a clinical deci...
